Trion Nemesis RR heading for production in 2016, 2000hp

October 23, 2014

You might remember the Trion Nemesis hypercar previewed earlier this year. The ambitious company has now revealed more details and has set a production target.

Yep, you read correctly. That’s 1492kW; more power than the mighty Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. To achieve this level of insanity the Nemesis RR comes with a 9.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine.

At this stage the car is still in hypothecal form and no real-world acceleration figures have been confirmed. The company is claiming a 0-100km sprint in just 2.8 seconds, with a top speed of over 450km/h. If it ends up achieving such a speed it will become the fastest car in the world. Did we mention the word ‘if’?

Helping to provide the performance is an eight-speed sequential manual transmission sending the unholy grunt into an all-wheel drive system. Torque figures haven’t been mentioned but we can only guess they would be through the roof, which means this will need to be a very heavy-duty drivetrain.

Hardware also includes some serious stoppers, comprising of carbon ceramic discs clamped by six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers. There’s also a race-car-like pushrod suspension setup with adjustable settings.

As for the exterior, it’s a completely bespoke design made up of carbon fibre panels taking the shape of a traditional low and sleek profile. At the back is an active retractable wing, while the front end incorporates a strange headlight design with big integrated intakes just below, sort of in the style of the McLaren P1.

Lastly, the interior is like a race car too with few creature comforts. It apparently accommodates drivers of up to 213cm tall, with a futuristic dash design, a full digital speedo cluster, and internet connectivity with various driving modes.

The plan is to make 50 examples of the Nemesis RR for the market, with each commanding a price of one million dollars. Production will commence later in 2015 with market entry set for January 2016.
